if i could have one travel wish for free i would like to travel back to the berlin 20´s. i would love to walk through the wilhelminian streets and feel the originality of this city. the roughness, the noise, the smells.
one place that plays with my association of these times is the old markhalle in my local kreuzberg kiez. if you are standing in there you can nearly feel the heat and the pressure of back in the days.
located just some side roads next to the touristy autobahn lanes in eisenbahnstrasse it is a spot for locals but also a place where you can see the change of this city´s face. on the hot spots one bar after another is popping up every week. just around the corner originality dies out.
places like markthalle are shaping my personal view on the city and it´s history. so i hope there will be a healthy fusion between the old and the new. maybe here you find more berlin than at all the sightseeing spots of the tourist guides.
